Nollywood actress, Uchenna Nnanna has taken to social media to call out her colleagues who sit on the fence, to come out from their hiding, and support a candidate ahead of the 2023 presidential elections.
The beautiful mum of two via her Instagram in a lengthy post addressed the situation in the country, while urging her colleagues to use their voices to push for the right candidate.
Referencing the 2nd anniversary of the Lekki massacre that was marked on the 20th of October, 2022, the actress noted that it was important for celebrities to be bold with their choices, so they could collectively end bad governance in Nigeria.
The mother of two clearly stated that she is Obidient and will not hide her choice of candidate.
She wrote: “Please let us read carefully and make our constructive contributions and tag whoever that needs to see this post. 20/10/2022 just passed as we did 2nd memorial of some of our youths that were murdered at Lekki toll gate on 20/10/2020.
“Now this is for everyone that participated at EndSARS protest in 2020 or supported the EndSARS Movement and still participated in the 2nd year memorial that is not saying anything on this forthcoming Election especially the celebrities.
“Please what is your plan? because you can’t sit on the fence, you have to use your voice and your page to do something, you have to let us know the candidate you are supporting.
“Be bold enough to tell us on whose side you are. This is because if we fail to get it right this time, and we end up with another bad Government then we will have to start another protest when we are yet to recover from the one we had.
“So for us to save ourselves that stress. I’m calling on all the celebrities to use their voices not just sitting there while some are just saying vote wisely.
“This coming election has a lot at Stake for this country. It will either make or mar us.
“The time to act is now. Please choose a side and be bold about it. Stop saying vote wisely. We all have seen what is going on. Hit the nail on the head.
“Your followers and fans are waiting for you to lead them right. Are you just going to keep quiet? Let’s take action. The time is now.
“Let’s shun tribe, religion and do the right thing for once. That’s what they have used against us all these years and look at where it landed us.
“Special thanks to all those who already have a candidate and have declared that openly. Own it with your chest. As for me and my household we are fully Obidient.”
